Complaints: Office of Professional Responsibility
The Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) of the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) conducts administrative investigations on misconduct issues against employees of CSOSA. The OPR reports directly to the CSOSA Director, but is an impartial investigative body that performs its investigations without influence from any other component or employee within the Agency. The OPR is responsible for conducting reviews or investigations on possible instances of internal violations of laws or regulations, mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority, substantial and specific danger to public health and safety, and allegations of employee misconduct.
The purpose of an OPR investigation is to determine if allegations of employee misconduct are substantiated. If allegations are substantiated, the OPR investigative reports are reviewed by the Office of General Counsel (OGC) for legal sufficiency, after which, the report is forwarded to the appropriate Associate Director. The appropriate Associate Director then provides the report to the appropriate management official, who will act as the Proposing Official. After consultation with the Office of Human Resources, Employee and Labor Relations, the Proposing Official will make a recommendation for the appropriate remedial action.
